I originally started Betterhelp therapy during a huge transition in my life and intended to only use it for a few months. However, since having Gbubemi as my counselor i’ve been a client for over a year and look forward to our weekly calls and her insightful feedback. Gbubemi has been able to help me redirect my positive energy and outlook to myself and has helped me to not internalize things that are not meant for me. She’s been great and I highly recommend her.

I always look forward to our sessions and appreciate that she's firm but gentle in her approach. I was dealing with a lot of trauma and have utilized her techniques to destress and be less triggered. So grateful for Ms G!

Gbubemi is an amazing therapist. She listens to every word I say and helps me analyze my feelings as I'm describing any situation. Working with Gbubemi has helped me gain a deeper understanding of myself to help me operate in this complex world.

Gbubemi is honest and no nonsense. If you come ready to participate in your therapy, you will reap the benefits right away. Gbubemi has an organized way of sorting through a jumble of thoughts and fears and complaints to get at what your next best move might be and how you can make it.

Gbubemi is so easy to talk with. She is very professional with a relatable demeanor that makes you feel comfortable. I love that she is patient and seems to help me process my own thoughts rather than judging or giving me her own solutions to my concerns .

Written by S.U. on Jun 02, 2020 after therapy with Gbubemi for 3 weeks on issues concerning career difficulties, and coaching

Gbubemi, pronounced "Boo Beb Bee" is great. I was skeptical of online counseling, but our video connection and her seeing me, giving me non-verbal cues of listening, and then our dialogue of questions and answers were extremely calming and helpful. Gbubemi has given me insight about my issues and helped me think differently. And I appreciate the kindness she has extended. Thank you!

I’ve had a few sessions with Gbubemi and she’s very qualified, attentive, and cares. She not only listens, but she also challenges you to change some of your thought processes and to understand why your current perspective isn’t the only one to consider. She’s been very helpful in helping me unpack somethings. I look forward to working with her more.

Gbubemi Uwaifo is called, gifted, and anointed to counsel. I was very reticent to open up about all of my issues; however, from the very first interaction, I found G to be so very unassuming. She really allows you to speak with absolutely no judgment. Moreover, her extensive knowledge and expertise do not ever override her sense of compassion for the human plight. I feel extremely blessed to have G as my counselor.

Written by B.O. on Feb 19, 2020 after therapy with Gbubemi for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, anger management, and career difficulties

Gbubemi is a wonderful and authentic counsellor. She worked with me for 4 weeks to tackle all my personal issues one by one each week using goal setting, education, worksheets, and CBT. I loved her real down to earth nature. I couldn't even tell she was using CBT during our sessions, that's how natural it felt. I've been to other therapists in the past and it felt very clinical and rigid. I am forever grateful for her guidance and advice. It's taken years off my burdened heart. Thank you Gbubemi! If you're willing to do the work, you can make a change to feel empowered again, and take back the control in your life to make positive changes.

Written by S.E. on Jan 28, 2020 after therapy with Gbubemi for 2 weeks on issues concerning self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, and adhd

Gbubemi understood what I am going through and identified the areas that I need to work on to be able to achieve what I like to. The write up and worksheets are very useful to help me introspect and be able to understand it better and hoping over period of time be able to make it as a way of how I think, react etc.
